    If you're set on that motor. I guess the project parameters dictate and we haven't heard those. If you've calculated the requirements and are stuck with that motor, you'll probably be needing to go with speed controllers instead.

    Ok i will bite... what is a speed controller and can i control it from C# code. As far as the motor is concern, i can switch to a different 12 volt motor, but it would be in my guess something more powerful like a windshield wiper or electric window motor. I would also then be switching to a direct drive system with chain and gears over the gear system i have today... another option would be to have a servo pull a switch back and forth and by pass the relay concept.
